    From the birth of pioneering anti-corruption organization Transparency International in 1993, to the Arab Spring in 2011, this is the story of people who risk their lives (and the many who support them) to combat government-business conspiracies to secure justice, accountability, transparency and integrity. It is the story of an African child denied an education because her parents cannot bribe a school teacher, and of hundreds of thousands of Egyptians who overcame their fears, encouraged by Twitter and Facebook, to demand an end to government abuse.

    This is an insider’s account of the battles, the fighters, the villains and their victims. Now, as never before, from vast public rallies in India to “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrations, the fight against corruption is moving ahead. Major policy questions must still be resolved in the White House and far beyond – at stake is nothing less than our global security, the reduction of poverty, the stability of our economic and financial systems, and the cause of freedom and democracy.

    Global Financial Integrity (GFI) is a Washington, DC-based research and advocacy organization which promotes transparency in the international financial system.

Waging War on Corruption - Inside the Movement Fighting the Abuse of Power

  • By Frank Vogl

  • published in September 2012 by Rowman & Littlefield

    The publication of this book will see a transformation in my approach to promoting the values that every reader of Ethicsworld shares.

    www.frankvogl.com hosts a blog that features the crucial ethical issues of our time in business and in government and I seek comments.

    I believe that we are at an inflection point in governance - everywhere. The voices of the public, through social media and beyond, are becoming ever lounder and having an ever greater impact -- from China to Egypt, from Greece to Venezuela, from Washington DC and across the shrinking communciations globe.

    The call - everywhere - is for greater transparency, accountability and integrity.

    My book takes the reader on a journey from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the rise of the Arab Spring. It highlights the victims of corruption, and the heroes on the frontlines of a long war.
